Klein Collins High School Awarded $1,400 for ‘Save a Tree…Read an eBook’ Grant
Klein Collins High School received a $1,400 grant today to purchase award-winning books from the TAYSHAS reading list to foster a love of reading.
During a surprise visit by the Klein ISD Education Foundation Celebration Express, the school was awarded the grant by Foundation directors, community members, and Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown. School staff were overjoyed as dozens of Foundation supporters climbed out of their school bus and delivered large checks to grant recipients.
The grant, sponsored by Stantec, will support Klein ISD’s 81-year history of excellence and innovation in education by providing secondary students with a plethora of amazing and powerful books to make reading relevant and fun.
Congrats to @KCHSLibrary for the hard work they put into ensuring that every student gets a chance to read an awesome book! The grant will allow 2 extra copies of the award-winning books for students to check out at once! Happy reading, Tigers! 🐯📚 @KleinCollins 🎉 pic.twitter.com/HoaUDxgTqM
